I thought it funny that the 15 people that post here (not including tito's many names) had nothing but bad things to say because Steve Miller didn't adorn your little precious Jerry Garcia.

You do realize when we all die "Take the Money and Run" will heard before "Truckin" ever will?

RIGHT or do the 15 of you completely blind yourself from reality?

Just because you can get 900 to drink Kool-aid, I still say my 300 are more important.

Numbers is numbers, but sum is better than others.

You're right; besides, we 300 like Kool-aid to begin with. Didn't we come up with the best Kool-aid additive since sugar?

We just don't like being told we HAVE to drink it. Flavor choice, and all...

Hanging in there! I know the feeling--seriously; work can be a good thing in such a setting. One day at a time, one day...we've been holding down the fort in your absence, though my Prime Minister status is under question without the Royalty here (you, DB) to back me up...some of these youngsters don't even know I am "titled" and thus "entitled" (or at least I think that's what my contract says...). At least SDH, Arb and a few others remember the old days hereabouts.

We even had a brief visit from Cush a few weeks back.

You're going to have to get in line...we got PLENTY of those around here; plus, always remember: no matter what happens, no matter what you do, you are ROYALTY for life. Ah, the beauty of a good (or bad?) lineage! They can't change your birth certificate (you did get one from Diana when she certified your status, right? I know she sent me something...er, wait a minute! It's a cease and desist order! Crap, nevermind...).

Not sure if i was included in the 15 but I don't understand your point. That Steve Miller wrote catchy little pop tunes? Who cares? Steve can like or dislike whoever he wants. I just don't understand if he hated the Dead so much why did he open for them in '92? Just Taking The Money And Running? I believe he even appeared on stage with them at least once during that tour. Seems to me that if you despised the band so much you would steered clear of that opportunity.

I posted eight times on that thread, and said nothing but bad things about SMB, so I hereby demand recognition for 8 of the 15. At least it's a more manageable number than 300.

WILLIAM TELL SHALL BE RECOGNIZED HENCEFORTH AS THE GREATEST HATER OF THE STEVE MILLER BAND AND ALL MUSIC ASSOCIATED WITH STEVE MILLER. PLEASE DO NOT GET HIM A CHEESEBURGER OR REFER TO HIM AS THE GANGSTER OF LOVE. HE IS NOT A SPACE COWBOY, CAN NOT FLY LIKE AN EAGLE AND PREFERS TO FLY ON SMALL PLANES, NOT BIG OLE JET AIRLINERS. IF YOU MAKE ANY REFERENCES TO A STEVE MILLER BAND SONG HE MIGHT TRY TO MAKE YOU DISAPPEAR BUT HE WILL NOT CONJURE UP ANY MAGICAL SPELLS WITH THE WORD ABRACADABRA.

Happy now?

Perfect! I gotta get that on to a little business card so I can silently hand it to people when introduced (might need you to come along since no one I know ever introduces me to anyone of worth) and then smile smugly as they realize who they are dealing with...a man of conviction, a man of taste, a man who believes it is SILLY to sing about HOT CHILI.

Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: I really hate to give SM more space, but...

WTF? You got me good on that one...here you go (he actually INVENTED a word?!? Maybe Truthest has something here...did Jerry?):

The word pompatus (also spelled pompitous) is a neologism used in the lyrics of Steve Miller's 1973 rock song "The Joker":

Some people call me the space cowboy.
Yeah! Some call me the gangster of love.
Some people call me Maurice,
'Cause I speak of the pompatus of love.

The words "space cowboy" and "gangster of love" are both references to previous Miller songs. The "pompatus" line is also a reference to an earlier song of his, "Enter Maurice," which was recorded the previous year:

My dearest darling, come closer to Maurice
so I can whisper sweet words of epistemology
in your ear and speak to you of the pompatus of love.

Although Miller claims he invented the word, all of his song-writing shows strong rhythm and blues influences, and a 1954 song called "The Letter" by the Medallions had the lines:

Oh my darling, let me whisper
sweet words of pizmotality
and discuss the puppetutes of love.

The song was composed by Vernon Green as a description of his dream woman. "Pizmotality described words of such secrecy that they could only be spoken to the one you loved," Green explained. He coined the term puppetutes "to mean a secret paper-doll fantasy figure who would be my everything and bear my children."

Steve didn't adorn Jerry? I could swear I saw a picture of him wearing a necklace that had a little bearded guitar player with glasses hanging from it.

Wait . . . maybe that was Edie Brickell.
